Frustrated with Amazon

I love reviews. Good ones, bad ones, criticizing ones, and helpful ones. It’s been 3 months since I hit the ‘publish’ button for “Wisps of Words” And the reviews are slow to come in and I was wondering why. Then last week my cousin Debbie texted me and said that a screen popped up and …

Waiting

   We all do it. From the time we are born, till we die. The agitation. The anticipation. Stress. Excitement. Anger. Happiness.    We wait in line at the grocery store with ten other people when only one cashier is open.    We wait for the bus in the pouring down rain.    We wait …

Wisps of Words

My brother passed away on January 31, 2001. I wanted ‘Wisps of Words’ published on Amazon on January 31, 2023, but I ran into a few formatting issues with the ebook. So I decided to make the publishing date 2/3/23. My 65th birthday. I hit the ‘publish’ button yesterday morning. Success! Right? No. Amazon shows …

After I wrote about Rocky and Athena, I wanted to do a follow-up, because there are always two sides to every story. Twelve years ago my son texted me a picture of his new puppy and the only reaction I had was, “Please tell me that’s not a pit bull.”    Many of us have …

Rocky and Athena

(A short horror story) It has been two years since that fateful day. A time Kaitlyn would like to forget but will always remember. It was the week before Halloween and they were into their second lockdown since the pandemic began. No pumpkins, ghosts, or witches decorated the front yards. No trick-or-treaters would knock on …

My List of Buckets (My Bucket of Lists)

Oops! I got that backwards. It should say, My Bucket List. I was reading license plates while stuck in traffic a couple of weeks ago and the car’s plate in front of me had the letters, VOP and I pointed it out to my son and told him that my POV is backwards.    Anyway, …

Let’s Start Again!

Happy New Year! Well, 2021 has left us and it’s time to begin that uphill climb into 2022. How are you going to spend this new year? Any plans? Goals? Or resolutions (shudder)? I don’t make new year’s resolutions. To me, they are like promises that you can’t keep. But there are some things that …

HELP!

Is it avoidance? Procrastination? I’ve been struggling to write. To move forward with my writing seems to be non-existent. Heck, I’ve been having trouble moving forward with all of my projects. Even this blog post has been hanging around in my head for a month or more now. I can accomplish everything from start to …

Oops!

Even though my last post was about saying good-bye to 2020, I realized there was more about the year that I’d like to put behind me. Most of that post was positive, but there were negatives too. So what better way then to tell you about it and show you. Sorry about the video being …

Wow, it’s been a year to forget.

I last blogged on March 12, 2020. I completely forgot that I had posted at the beginning of the pandemic. Many of my family and friends have wondered where I’ve been since then. Well let me tell you that I feel like I’ve fallen down a black hole and landed upside-down in the “Twilight Zone” …
